- Final Thought
Basically, the taste of espresso is savory and pleasantly bitter. Drinking when you’re eating fatty foods or when you’re feeling stuffy can make you feel better. Because of its unique bitter taste, it gives the feeling of washing away the grease from the body. It is natural to drink espresso while drinking another coffee.
First of all, you should quit coffee with milk and tame your tongue with the habit of drinking a menu that is close to the original taste of coffee while avoiding sauce or sugar. Because the amount of espresso is small, it is served in a small cup called ‘demitasse’. The glass must be preheated with hot water before use.
The size of the cup is so small because if it is cold, the espresso will cool down quickly. It’s a good idea to preheat the glass before brewing and drink it right away. In order for a drink to feel delicious, it must have minimal sweetness. In that sense, when you first drink espresso, add 1 to 2 tsp. of sugar to your liking. This is because the sweetness of sugar and the bitterness of coffee are in harmony, allowing you to experience a richer taste.
*How to make
First of all, grind 16~20g of beans. And mount the portafilter after tamping the filling inside. And then, extract 30ml within 20~30 seconds.
Two shots of espresso, or double shots. It is coffee that provides 40 to 60 ml of the equivalent of two cups of espresso. There is nothing like doppio to feel the afterglow of coffee a little longer because you can feel the bitter taste that is moderately pleasing. If you want to drink a lot of cappuccino or café mocha at a café, you can also order Doppio. It tastes even better if you eat it with a sweet cake. For reference, in Italy, the day after drinking alcohol, doppio is also used to relieve hangovers.
For more information, most cafes use a portafilter for two cups, so if you order a single espresso, you often give only one cup and discard the other cup. So, when I go to a café, I sometimes get a grateful offer to give me a double instead of throwing away a cup. Instead, some cafés offer coffee that has changed taste after a while, so you have to check whether or not you are brewing a new one.
3. Hot Americano ( Caffe Americano )
You already know what it is and how to make it, even if we do not mention it in detail. One of the top coffee drinks that you used to drink at cafes or home would probably be hot americano, especially in the fall and winter season.
For your information, diluting it with water does not mean that the coffee taste will be cloudy. Rather, the hot water makes the taste softer, highlighting the natural characteristics of coffee. After pouring an appropriate amount of water into the mug, gently turn it while pouring espresso. The thick crema slightly swells and looks more delicious.
Espresso with hot water added to the amount of coffee made 75-95㎖. It got the same name because it tastes similar to the thin coffee that Americans have been drinking a lot. However, while American coffee is drip coffee, Café Americano has the difference that hot water is added to espresso coffee. It is also called ‘Espresso Lungo ‘, meaning ‘I increased the amount of espresso’.
4. ‘Espresso Romano’ for Monday
On Monday, when the body and mind are heavier and lazier than ever, adding extra espresso shots is not enough. There is a good coffee to drink at this time. It is ‘Espresso Romano’ with a fresh lemon scent added.
A cup of sweet, bitter, and sour Espresso Romano can really make us feel drowsy and down. This coffee drink is called espresso with lemon slices on top. And Romano is Italian and it also means Rome in Italian.
To tell you more, in Europe, the water quality is not good, so people drink it with lemon to improve the taste of coffee. It is said that because of the acid component of lemon, the crema is weakened and the coffee tastes good.
Firstly, when you take a sip of espresso, you will feel the sweetness and bitterness by putting sugar on your lips as well. Then, taste a little lemon, and the espresso scent remaining on your tongue will disappear. Overall, Espresso Romano, where you can taste three flavors at the same time, seems attractive.
*How to make
The only thing to prepare is lemon, and the way to make that drink is simple. After extracting the espresso, add 3 to 4 drops of lemon juice. Put the lemon peel on top and it’s done. The refreshingness of lemon peel (a lemon peel simmered in sugar) and lemon juice further maximizes the acidity of espresso. If you don’t have a lemon peel, you can cut it into thin slices. You can add sugar according to your taste.
5. Café Mocha
Espresso and milk, chocolate, and whipped cream are blended together to create a sweet and soft mocha coffee menu. You can also add whipped cream to make it softer and sweeter. Using a whipping machine, first, paste the cream on the inner wall of the cup for café mocha, then rotate it in a circle along the inner wall of the cup to make a shape. On top of that, garnish with chocolate syrup and chocolate powder. Moreover, mocha coffee without cream creates a soft taste through harmony with milk, milk froth, espresso, and chocolate, while exuding the unique flavor and aroma of mocha.
*How to make
Pour 15-20 ml of chocolate into a cup of café mocha and extract espresso. Using a spoon, stir until the extracted espresso and chocolate are well mixed. Pour warmed milk and fill up to 80% of the glass. That’s it for a traditional cafe mocha.
6. Café Macchiato
The meaning of Macchiato ( Macchiato ) is “stained ” in Italian. The crema appears when extracting espresso, there is milk shall mean the stained-shaped bubbles. In fact, in Italy, a coffee cup of a general size is used to emphasize the original taste of espresso. And it is also common to add milk or milk foam to a larger mug to give a soft taste.
In addition to adding foam, there is also a method of holding a glass and pouring milk foam from the center. Depending on the sign to decorate the caramel syrup over the milk foam Caramel Macchiato, by adding more milk, you can enjoy latte macchiato.
7. Café Latte
It is a representative coffee using milk, and latte means ‘milk’ in Italian. You can heat the milk warm and mix a 1:4 ratio of espresso to milk. Latte, which has a soft milk taste, is characterized by a large amount of latte and drinking in a large glass. It can be served with bread for breakfast, and even drinking this alone is reliable as a meal replacement.
When making a latte, it is good to add a little milk froth as a finish. This is because the foam acts as a lid and prevents the temperature from dropping. However, if the foam rises thickly, it can look like a cappuccino, so you can put it on it slightly as if you are covering it with a thin lid.
*How to make
Extract 30 ml of espresso. And then, heat the milk. At this time, the temperature is suitable for 65 to 70 degrees. Lastly, pour 200ml of the warmed milk into the coffee.
8. ‘Dry Cappuccino’ that resembles a cloud
Cappuccino is another popular coffee that goes well in autumn. It feels like putting clouds in a blue sky in a coffee cup. The life of a cappuccino is a rich bubble no matter what anyone says. A cappuccino with a dead foam is like cola without carbonate. However, instead of ‘wet cappuccino’, which is familiar with latte art, mixed with milk and foam, we recommend ‘dry cappuccino’ with a visible foam layer.
The biggest difference between a dry cappuccino and a wet cappuccino is the quality of the foam. Dry cappuccino needs a foam that has a lot of foam and has a lower viscosity, so it has good coagulation power. So, it creates a lot of foam when injecting air, and the steaming time is relatively long.
Dry cappuccino is rich in milk foam, so when you drink it, it pours into your mouth with a lot of foam, so you can feel the sweetness of milk richly, but you may feel it. Compared to the wet cappuccino, it has a milder foam than a dry cappuccino, giving it a slightly softer taste.
*How to make
Put the espresso in a glass and add warm milk to it. On top of it, but the milk froth in abundance. Lastly, sprinkle cinnamon powder or sugar over the foam to make it sweet. If you foam milk as it is, you can enjoy the savory taste of milk.
9. Vanilla Latte
It is a type of coffee with vanilla syrup added to the café latte using espresso. It is a coffee that contains milk and vanilla syrup in espresso, and you can feel the bitter taste of espresso and the flavor of vanilla syrup. Vanilla is one of the spices that are commonly used in ice cream, cookies, and cakes.
In some cases, it is also added to coffee. This variation of latte with vanilla syrup is vanilla latte. It’s like a café mocha or caramel macchiato minus chocolate syrup or caramel syrup, and vanilla ingredients. The sweet aroma and taste of vanilla syrup, and the strong coffee aroma and bitter taste of espresso are sweet in harmony.
If a general café latte or cappuccino is not sweet enough for the first taste, most of the vanilla lattes on the market fit well regardless of taste.
*How to make
Add steam milk and vanilla syrup (or powder) to your espresso.
10. Tea and coffee meet ‘TEA Drip Coffee’
